Afternoon lads, has anyone ever built a period looking turbo mini? With mine been a mk1 id still like it to look old/original. The main issue is a compromise on power and probably extra cost which ain't good.

There is no way to make a period looking turbo car under the bonnet, especially if you have an intercooler.

The only way for a period forced induction look under the bonnet is a Shorrock SC, but they are expensive and a bit shit.

the design shows a distinct lack or imagination,
talk about starting off with a clean sheet of paper, then not bothering to fucking draw on it,lol

I think Paul's car looks pretty 70's, which is period for his car.



There's no blue hoses or busy electronics on show.

Does look good. Love the braided hoses.

If something is worth doing, it's worth doing half of.

Period looking? - you mean it's green rather than red.

Should have said under the bonnet, thm braided hoses look nice and tidy. I've looked at thm chargers and thr a bit lame performance wise.

I'm thinking green with a downton badge on the rocker cover, got to be worth 20 extra BHP.
